Eric Dier, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen also come in, replacing Danny Rose, Harry Winks and Dele Alli.
Tottenham XI: Hugo Lloris, Ben Davies, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min, Harry Kane.

Matthew Upson, former England defender said ”Bayern Munich were very good and Spurs haven’t been hitting the heights of last season’s Champions League. The second half was bizarre.
”Perhaps what we are expecting is a little too much. They hung on to that fourth sport last season ahead of a poor Arsenal side. I think we have to be careful what our expectations are with Spurs.
”They reached a Champions League final, but at the end of the day it’s a cup competition and if you look at their run it was a cup rollercoaster.
”If you lose by that much, something has gone wrong. When you look at the individual performances from that night, there were some shockers.
”The group almost looks like they’ve lost an edge of belief that they can go and win something. Is this group in acceptance that perhaps they won’t win a trophy after all this hard work. People are looking at their futures now.”
